2006 Education data for Madison County, Idaho.

Dear Friends, I am working with the Madison County, Idaho. Industry number 450 all other miscellaneous professions has an industry output of $351.578 million with an employment of 1,208 and industry 462 colleges-universities- and junior colleges has an industry output of $184.981 million with an employment of 3,171. I am aware of a small university in Madison county, which helps explain the contribution of the university to the county economy. However, I cannot explain the very large size of the industry number 450, which is about 20 percent of the county output. I would appreciate if you could try to shed some light as to what is included as other miscellaneous professions. Is it possible that some of the output in this groups (Industry 450) is part or a large part of the salaries earned by non-academic staff in the University? It would be difficult to explain SAM results with a very large industry which is not larger the University, which is very possibly the largest industry in the county. Thanks for your help. Sincerely, Abelardo Rodrguez Dept of Ag Econ & Rural Soc Univ of Idaho Moscow, ID 83844-2334 phone 208-885-7444 fax 208-885-5759 email abelardo@uidaho.edu

  • For REIS 83 Professional and Technical Services (2005 data) the employment was estimated to be 1625 (based largely on 3 digit NAICs BEA county earnings and earnings per worker from state level BEA data controlled to 2 digit NAICs REIS county employment data). These were distributed to IMPLAN sectors 444-450 based on ES202 data sets. Since the ES202 data for this county was largely subject to non-disclosure rules for the Professional and technical services categories the distribution is based on the size classes of the firms reported by County Business Patterns. I can not tell what these firms are other than to refer you to the NAICs codes. Note the disclosed ES202 employment for NAICs 5419 is less than the combined IMPLAN sectors 444-450, with the difference being self-employment which ES202 does not cover.
